Assigning Drive Letters to Network Shares

It can be time consuming typing a network share (i.e. \\computer\share) or browsing to it in Windows Explorer. A drive letter can be assigned to the share with the following steps:

  1. Left click the Start button and then select My Computer. If this option is not available, then right click the Start button and select Explore. My Computer will be in the folder list.
  2. If My Computer is open, select Map Network Drive from the Tools menu, or alternately, if Explorer is used, right click on My Computer and select Map Network Drive.
  3. Select the drive letter that you want to use and the network folder that it will be assigned to.
